What is the difference between internal and lead auditor training?

Internal Auditor training enables you to undertake audits within your organisation. Internal auditor training courses are generally 2 days in length.

Lead Auditor training enables you to undertake 1st party (internal within your organisation), 2nd party (supplier) and 3rd party (certification body) audits. Lead Auditor training takes places over 5 days (40 hours CPD).

We offer a wide selection of internal auditor training and CQI and IRCA lead auditor training courses across a range of management standards including ISO 9001, ISO 45001 and ISO 14001.

The decision on which course is right for you will often depend on the organisation you work for and your career path. If you need to discuss which course is best for you please do contact our training team on 0333 123 9001 who will be happy to help you.

Delegates are recommended to have prior knowledge of the standard, for example ISO 9001, before undertaking an Internal Auditor or Lead Auditor course. We offer introductory courses across a range of standards to provide delegates with an understanding of the clauses and terminology used within the standards.
